THE BRAIN DRAIN
Documentary film collaboration with filmmaker Anne Fehres - DUE 2019
Brain Drain, is a collaboration between filmmaker Anne Fehres and researcher/artist Luke Conroy. It is a short, low-budget documentary that follows various individuals (18-35) on the North-West and West Coasts of Tasmania. Each individual is placed at different points in their life trajectory and offer various portraits around the theme of the Tasmanian 'brain drain'. Together, these portraits hope to bring together a narrative around the brain drain in this part of Australia, which is at once more personal and more nuanced than many mainstream descriptions attest.
